BLOOMINGDALE, Ind. (WTHI) - A massive fire destroyed part of a Parke County business over the weekend.

It happened at Futerex Industries in Bloomingdale.

On Monday, fire investigators and insurance companies were on site to look things over.

The State Fire Marshal's Office told News 10 the fire is still under investigation.

They said the unofficial cause of the fire may have originated from machinery or ductwork.

15 fire departments responded to the fire that took several hours to put out.

We spoke with Helen Weisheit, the director of human resources for Futurex.

She said the plan is to move forward.

"We are very organized to this point. We have a great insurance company, we're clicking down the to-do list in order and taking questions answers, and making sure all of our people and all of our customers are taken care of...and they're our number one priority," Weisheit said.

She said no jobs were lost due to the fire and the company was able to absorb employees to other positions to keep production up.
